In ‘Real Lace’ Stephen Birmingham probes the fascinating world of America’s Irish catholic rich. In this engrossing and often hilarious book we read of how some people of irish descent emerged – frequently in less than a generations time – out of poverty and into positions of both social and business prominence. This makes for a book that is more than lively entertainment. It is a fascinating and important social history.
